Happiness Eaten: Crockpot Pulled Pork

My friend, Melessa - another newlywed bride here in Texas, shared this recipe with me, and I make it almost every week.  

$$$$ TIP: I buy a pork loin at Sams Club once a month for about $12-$15.  I cut it up into about 2 or 3 roasts and several pork chops, which I bag in separate portions and freeze.  One loin goes a loooooooong ways.
This was me, showing my final 4-H pig as a senior.
I love pigs.  Always have, always will.  I loved raising them and showing them.  I also enjoy eating pork.  Sausage.  Bacon.  The occasional pork rinds.  Pork chops.  My Mom's Thanksgiving ham.  Bacon.  And now, pulled pork.  I love this recipe.  You can thicken the juice with flour or corn starch and have a gravy for rice or potatoes.  You can throw the meat in some tortillas with bell peppers, cheese and sour cream.  You can serve it over baked sweet potatoes with some Sweet Baby Ray's drizzled on top.... mmmmmhmmmm... that's what I'm talkin' bout!

Crockpot Pulled Pork
prep time: 2 minutes
cook time: 6-8 hours

(double recipe if desired)
2-3 lb - Either a boneless pork loin roast or boneless pork butt roast
1 pkg - Dry pork gravy
2 cubes - Chicken Bullion
1.5-2 cups - Water (start with 1.5)

Put all ingredients in crockpot, cover and cook on high 6-7 hours. Eat a filling snack before opening the crockpot lid or you will have to fight yourself off from eating the entire roast after getting home from work.

it lives

The blog lives!  It went into hibernation for a long while, but I'm bringing it back to life.  Its time.
There's so much to tell, and... basically I just love to write.  I need to begin again.
